Is There Some Connection Between Tattoos and the Draft I'm Missing?

Don Wright, 12/28/11:
Unless that guy is substantially older than he should be (to have a teenage son) -- since conscription in the US ended in 1973, 38 years ago -- he's a gigantic hypocrite.

If he's older than that, the odds are he's still a gigantic hypocrite, since young men in the '60s were not notably thrilled to be grabbed by the government to be sent to fight and die in a war they didn't necessarily agree with.

(What is that thing people say about history repeating?)
